The major shift in the Cleveland Browns’ receiving corps continues this week in Indianapolis, as Mohamed Massaquoi is once again inactive, dealing with a lingering hamstring injury. Rookie Josh Gordon will start in his place, hoping to continue the great impression he has left the past two weeks.
This has to come as a major disappointment for Massaquoi, who is slowly starting to see his playing time slip away. If Gordon has another big game (which is entirely possible against the Colts), Massaquoi could once again fall back into obscurity whenever he returns.
In other lineup news, rookie linebacker James-Michael Johnson will start in place of Scott Fujita (neck) and guard John Greco will start for Jason Pinkston, who was hospitalized on Friday with blood clots in his lungs.
